I went up the tram and it was amazing. They views are incledible. The second time i walked all the way up and while is was a long walk and somewhat difficult it was well worth it. It would take you around 45 min if you are use to hiking. This place is amazing.

You can actually walk all the way up to the mount Floyen or take the cable car up there. Quite good view up the mountain as you are able to see the whole Bergen. There are a few walking trail up there so if you have some good few hours to spare, do choose some trails to enjoy with your... More

I would advise getting up here for sunset. You can grab a beer and watch the city lights come alive. It's hard to convey how high up you are. Take a camera because the views are out of this world.

The 10 minute Funicular ride was awesome both ways! The view is phenomenal once you reach the top of the Floyen. You get to see the beautiful city of Bergen and the sea which is breathtaking! We enjoyed walks at the top and had some hot chocolate at a shop that sells souvenirs, snacks and beverages.

hiked up to the top of mount Floyen and it was just lovely, as luckily the weather was very good and sunny. One can also take the train/tram to the hill top with stations/stops inbetween. The view of the whole city is amazing from the top. There is restaurant and souvenier shop at the top. The walk itself is enjoyable... More

We hiked up to the top of Mount Floyen and took the Funicular back down after hiking around for a while. It was a great day for a hike - as long as it's sunny out this would be the number one thing to do in Bergen IMO. Despite having a a hiking trail map I still managed to navigate... More

We went at night, and it was so good we went back the next day to see the view by day and to see the sunset. The funicular ride was smooth and fast, despite stopping at several stations on the way - it is part of the transport system for those who live on the slopes od the mountain above... More

It is a fun ride up the mountain and once you get there, the view is stunning. There are hiking trails for those inclined and a nice playground for the little ones. Other than a restaurant and a small shop, there is not a lot beyond the view, but that alone is worth the price.
